Capone talks to writer-director Don Coscarelli about the exceptional remastering of PHANTASM

Hey everyone. Capone in Chicago here. Writer-director Don Coscarelli has been a longtime friend of Ain’t It Cool for as long as I can remember, and I’ve been fortunate enough to have multiple encounters with him over the years between convention appearances and special movie screenings. But if I’m not mistaken, this might be the first time he and I have sat down for a proper interview, and it seems only fitting that it be about the stunning restoration of his most legendary work, 1979’s PHANTASM. When this 4K digital restoration (supervised by J.J. Abrams) first played in front of an audience at last year’s Butt-Numb-a-Thon, I was sitting right next to Coscarelli, and I occasionally snuck a peak at him during the event, and he was positively beaming at the flawless picture and sound quality, right down to the perfectly re-created AVCO Embassy Film logo at the beginning of the film. Of course, we also know Coscarelli from his work on such films as BEASTMASTER, BUBBA HO-TEP, JOHN DIES AT THE END, and three PHANTASM sequels, as well as being the co-writer (with director David Hartman) of the soon-to-debut-at-Fantastic Fest PHANTASM: RAVAGER, which is said to be the last of the PHANTASM films (and the final film appearance of the The Tall Man himself, the great Angus Scrimm). In many locations around the country, the remastered PHANTASM was part of today’s Art House Theater Day. The screening will also include a never-before-seen sneak peek behind the scenes

Responding to Cuban’s tweeted announcement that the Shark Tank co-star (and Hillary supporter) would be in the front row at Monday’s “Humbling at Hofstra,” Trump crudely…
